The jazzy soundtrack and artistic presentation of dishes may hint at style over substance, but dishes like pork filet cooked in Colonnata lard with caramelized onions and apple cider vinegar are actually very good. The service—at times a single waitperson—can get overwhelmed when the dining room's busy, but you can always order a bottle from the excellent wine list to tide you over till the food arrives.

Dinner only. Closed Mondays, the last two weeks in January, and the last two weeks in June.
